  • Spacious natural bushland to walk through and see the kangaroos, wallabies and emus up close and feed them. Friendly staff. Good variety of Australian animals.  more »
  • A bit rundown. However, a great trip for family. Especially feeding kangaroos. We took a baby, two young children. The animals seemed well cared for.  more »

  • This a great place to visit with family and young kids. It's recommend to arrive as early as possible before it's too hot and the animals become less active. Entrance fee is not too expensive and each ticket is purchase comes with a bag of animal food. There's a nice verity of animals and you get get really close to some of them. The place is a bit old and does require some maintenance work and some upgrades. There's a lot more potential to this place if the owner will ever decide to do something about it. On the other hand, that's is probably why entrance fee is not too expensive.
  • We went there many times and think it is a great place for family and children to go. The park have more than 100 species animals and you can feed the kangaroo by hands. $19pp, I can’t say it is in a great value, but it worth this price. The environment inside is quite natural and the animals are so lovely. It is recommended cause it is very different from what you see in MEL zoo.
